I’m getting kinda good at this prediction thing.
On the old Commercial Appeal Grizz forums, I made a case for Allen Iverson coming to the Memphis Grizzlies. And it happened. (Sorry about that. Then again, the team gelled under Lionel Hollins after he handled the situation the way he did, so I’m not THAT sorry.)
Then I made a case for why the Grizzlies should pursue a trade for Zach Randolph. Not sorry about that one at all.
And just over a week ago, I made a case for why the Grizzlies should sign free agent PG Gilbert Arenas. And as it turns out, Arenas is in town to work out for the team, maybe signing for the postseason push. ESPN.com has a 5-on-5, and they all agree that Arenas is NOT the way to go for our beloved blue bears.
Went to the Grizz-Wizards game Sunday, and got a chance to hear what Tony Allen had to say about a possible Arenas pickup:
